Before rejoining the Arashikage Clan and partnering with Storm Shadow to destroy Cobra, Snake Eyes takes a trip to the Hard Master, the clan’s former leader who helped train the JOE years ago.

While conversing with his former master (or as much conversing as a mute can do) Snake Eyes presents his reasons for returning to the clan and learns how he can be of assistance in the neighborhood as the Hard Master’s latest student, a teenage girl has been targeted by a local gang.

The standalone tale is a bit of the curiosity as it’s almost completely outside the ongoing “Cobra Command” crossover. However, the story does serve as a reminder how dangerous and honorable a man our hero is as well as give another plausable explanation for him joining Storm Shadow (other than simply destroying Cobra).

Next month gives us a new beginning as the title become Snake Eyes and Storm Shadow and the pair go after their first target – Zartan. Worth a look.
